Even if it's only a day trip, check your Marrero tires before you get on the road. If they need repair, care, or replacement, see the Marrero tire pros at Twin Tire.
Summer is a time when many people head out on road trips. Sometimes, the road trips are planned in advance. Other times, they're a spur of the moment thing - like day trips to Shell Beach or other nearby destinations.
But whether the trip is long, short, planned, or on impulse, they should all have one thing in common - making sure your car is ready to go before you set out. Especially the tires, according to Florida's Department of Transportation and the Florida Highway Patrol.
"Whether you’re hitting the road for the ultimate family vacation or driving across town, prepare before you leave, practice good habits behind the wheel and never leave children or pets unattended,” said Florida Department of Transportation Secretary Kevin J. Thibault, P.E. “From checking tire pressure and planning your route to always driving sober and obeying the speed limit, simple steps can make a big difference and help keep you and others safe.”
The FHP offers a checklist for drivers who are going on road trips. Among those tips: "Check all tires, including the spare. Check the vehicle’s tire pressure and ensure the vehicle’s tires have adequate tire tread. Under-inflated tires can overheat. Never overload a vehicle; it can result in premature tire wear, blowouts and hydroplaning."

While you're at Twin Tire, also check your auto air. If your auto air isn't cooling, you can take advantage of Twin Tire's June special on auto air conditioning: a/c drain, evac and recharge for only $99.95. That’s a savings of $40.04 over the normal price of $139.99.
And, if your auto air doesn’t need recharging, but needs a new compressor, you can take advantage of Twin Tire’s other June deal – 10 percent off on the mechanical service you need up to $100.
Ask a Twin Tire auto repair pro for full details on both deals. But take advantage of them now, they’re only good until the end of the month.
